Las Canteras Beach, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

4.6
#1 of 1,118 in Outdoors in Canary Islands
A barrier reef just off shore of Las Canteras Beach breaks up the waves as the water rolls in and makes for easy swimming. Enjoy the warm sands and calm waters along the 3.1 km (1.9 mi) of beach. This is one of the most popular beaches in Gran Canaria, so you'll have no trouble finding a meal and souvenirs at one of the many restaurants and shops in the paseo marítimo. The large structure at the northeast corner of the beach is an auditorium named after the tenor Alfredo Kraus. A statue of the singer stands proud outside the auditorium's entrance. Plan your visit to Las Canteras Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Las Palmas de Gran Canaria day trip site .

  • Just a short walk from the centre of Las Palmas, this is truly a gem. Beautiful, sandy beach, fantastic views over the mountains and warm ocean - what's not to like?  more »
  • Very good and safe beach really exceptional. Many restaurants bars and good hotels. Beautiful walk to spend the afternoon night and walk in the moonlight. It really is one of the best beaches in Spain.
